Beautifully regular, partly breaking wave. The surf-left five meters of the wave start breaking at levels above 130 cumecs (typically April-November). Best time: May-August. If the water level is too low, the second spot in Bremgarten will typically be even better!

We found it! - Yes we found the spot three weeks ago si nice weather,barbecue,good vibration!
But so surprise by the flow of the riwer the water goes so fast!
When we saw the locals we thought that il we be easy but we are so fucking wrong!!!
I already surfed in Gaudelopue,in Martinique in such a great conditions but it is tricky to take off!!
By the way we will come back this week end and have some another trys!
And i m sure with some practice we will catch the wave but it is a big challenge!
Some girls surfs there and us ( three fellows ) can't and that's sucks you know what i a m saying?!!! :-)
Thank you again Mr.

To get to the river - Hey Killer,To go to that river surf spot, just go to Bremgarten, but in Aarau, not in Bern. So this is a 2h drive.You have to turn before you arrive in the village, just ask the people in the village. But if you look for a nice surf alternative, just try wakesurf.It's more expensive, but way better! And you really get the surfing feeling.Anyway, if you need directions, you can email me, i'll explain to you how to get there.ps: before you get there, check the water debit on admin.ch. You have to look at the upper station on the Reuss, and it has to be bigger than 1.5 and lower than 2.5.See ya.

Bring a rope - Hey guys,Just tried this spot yesterday. If the water is flowing too fast as is the case right now the wave stretches and you're out of it before you can even say the word "take off". On these days bring a rope that you can hold on to before "taking off" :-) Sucks a bit though.
